Being punished for speaking against GOI’s ruthless actions in J&K: Iltija Mufti
Iltija Mufti, Daughter of former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today accused Government of denying her permission for a visit to her Grand Father’s Mufti Muhammad Sayeed’s grave in Bijbhehra for speaking against GOI’s “ruthless” actions in J&K.
In a tweet, she said, ” Denied permission yet again to visit my grandfather’s grave in Bijbehara by @JmuKmrPolice. Odd that its safe enough for other SSG protectees inc 2 ex CMs to make trips to Gulmarg & Pahalgam but a security problem arises only in my case. @Sandeep_IPS_JKP why a different yardstick?”
She in her another tweet wrote, “Citing COVID as a reason is an excuse. Ive been denied permission since January. Im simply being punished for speaking against GOIs ruthless actions in J&K. Last I checked it was Ms Mufti who was detained under PSA, not both of us.”
Accusing Government of double standards, she told KNS that, ” They dont have a problem when bjp leaders from Delhi visit south kashmir but somehow a 20 visit to my grandfathers grave is an issue”
When asked whether her security has been downgraded as is alleged by other Politicians, she said, ” No. but i have repeatedly asked them to withdraw it since they have pretty much curtailed my movements.” (KNS)
